Views of Ancient Monuments in Central America, Chapas and Yucatan
by Frederick Catherwood, Architect
Barre, MA: Barre Publishers, 1965. Cloth. Fine. Frederick Catherwood. An all-but-immaculate copy of this 1965 re-issue of Frederick Catherwood's landmark 1844 "views of ancient monuments in Central America, Chiapas and Yucatan". The 1965 facsimile is in its own right a thing of beauty and quite sought after, only 500 copies having been issued by the publisher. Except for the slightest trace of light scuffing to the front panel of the publisher's elegant box (measuring 21 1/2" tall), the portfolio is as new. Frederick Catherwood's 25 remarkable chromolithographed plates are in pristine condition, as is the "outline map of Central America & Yucatan" and the accompanying caption booklet (housed in the front pastedown), giving context to and detailed description of each plate.
